Modern Hadith Studies: Continuing Debates and New Approaches (Paperback)
This book is dedicated to examining the various methods and trends in Hadith Studies across the globe. Bringing together contributions from ten scholars of Hadith, it addresses the subject from a variety of methodological vantage points and historical premises. Divided into two parts, it first looks at methods and approaches, and then presents 5 case studies focusing on specific questions and issues. Some of these authors seek to overturn, refine or reaffirm dominant paradigms within the field, while others look to expand its horizons in new directions. The global scope, and coverage of both longstanding debates and cutting edge methods and approaches, means this book will make a significant contribution to a controversial and challenging field.
